Within moments of the NFL's two-game suspension of Ray Rice, various sport organizations and victims rights groups stated their displeasure with Roger Goodall's decision ("Rice suspended 2 games," July 25). However, Ravens General Manager Ozzie Newsome and Coach John Harbaugh continue to vehemently defend Mr. Rice's behavior and stated the "circumstances would determine the consequences" - as if to infer Janey Rice somehow contributed to being knocked out cold and therefore a two-game suspension was fair.

One month after coach John Harbaugh emphasized a high standard for players' conduct, starting cornerback Jimmy Smith became the latest Ravens player to be arrested during an unusually rocky offseason. Smith, 25, was charged Saturday night with failure to obey a lawful order of a police officer, a misdemeanor, after an incident at the Greene Turtle in Towson, making him the fifth Ravens player to be arrested since February. Police responding to a call about an unconscious woman in a bathroom at the York Road bar said they found Smith helping an intoxicated woman in the women's restroom.

I am a rabbi and attorney who grew up in Baltimore. In past years I have been unsuccessful in getting the NFL to look at the religious holiday schedules before scheduling games that conflict with these observances. Rather than set up a calendar committee to avoid cultural conflict and disrespect, the NFL chooses to either ignore the issue or view to view it with "benign neglect. " Neither is acceptable. It happens that, aside from being observant, I am also an enthusiastic sports fan. There is simply no excuse for intentionally scheduling sports events on days that conflict with major religious holidays.

Ryan and Kubiak Dan Pompei Chicago Tribune It is difficult to argue with the choices of the players who were polled by The Sporting News. Gary Kubiak (underrated) has not won big in the postseason, but he runs a solid program, develops players and finds a way to consistently contend. Since the start of the 2011 season, he has guided the Texans to a 17-7 record despite seeing his team battle through some potentially devastating injuries.He really has put Houston on the NFL map again, with the four best seasons in franchise history.

I know that I probably will, or at least should, burn in hell for thinking, much less saying it, but isn't the NFL's "pink" campaign to raise awareness of breast cancer becoming a bit tiresome? The sentiment is admirable, but haven't they gone a little over the top? The money spent on pink caps, shoes, chinstraps, do-rags, etc. would be of much more benefit if donated directly to the cause.

Retired former Ravens center Matt Birk is staying involved with the NFL. The six-time Pro Bowl center and former Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year was named the league's director of football development today. Birk spent this past year working as an appeals officer for the NFL and NFL Players Association after retiring in 2012 following the Ravens' Super Bowl XLVII victory over the San Francisco 49ers. Now the former Ravens and Minnesota Vikings offensive lineman will be involved in development of the game and administration of game-day operations.

ESPN's Mike Sando sure knows how we like to fill our Ravens downtime - with talk of just how elite quarterback Joe Flacco is. The ESPN writer polled a number of NFL sources and asked a total of 28 to grade each of the league's starting quarterbacks, then put those into tiers in a piece today on the Worldwide Leader. The piece is behind ESPN Insider's pay wall, but here's the spoiler you're looking for - Joe Flacco isn't in the elite tier. Sando's poll had Flacco at No. 12 in the league, in Tier 2, which included Eli Manning (New York Giants)

Terrell Suggs' second-half struggles in 2013 apparently didn't alter the opinion around the league that the longtime Ravens defender remains one of the top pass rushers in the NFL. Suggs was recognized last night as the 26th-ranked player on the NFL Network's Top 100 list. The voting is done by players around the league.   The Ravens' all-time leader in sacks, sack yardage and forced fumbles, Suggs, 31, has become a mainstay on the top 100 list. He finished 56th    last year despite playing in only eight games after he suffered a partially-torn Achilles' tendon in the offseason.

Professional sports is not a rational undertaking. Fans will pay astronomical ticket prices, build palace-like billion-dollar stadiums for their teams and tattoo on their bodies the names of players who are themselves wholly indifferent to where they are playing. In the U.S., the most extreme example of such extreme behavior can be found around the National Football League, the nation's unofficial religion on Sundays, Mondays, Thursdays and some Saturdays, too. Just 40 miles to the south, the debate in Washington over the naming of that city's NFL franchise is threatening to reach levels of absurdity and national disgrace.

The Ravens are signing veteran linebacker Austin Spitler after a successful minicamp tryout, according to NFL sources. Spitler was a seventh-round draft pick of the Miami Dolphins in 2010. Spitler, 27, is a 6-foot-2, 250-pounder who has 31 career tackles in four NFL seasons. He is a former Ohio State starter and team captain. The Ravens are also signing undrafted rookie outside linebacker-defensive end Nick DiMarco. DiMarco is a 6-foot-2, 250-pounder from William Penn. The Ravens are expected to add other players, with veteran cornerbacks Aaron Ross and Dominique Franks regarded as likely additions.

Ray Rice and his wife met with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell today at the league's New York headquarters, one of the final steps for the embattled running back in dealing with his February offseason arrest before the start of the 2014 season. Two sources with knowledge of the situation confirmed the meeting, which has been expected as Rice faces discipline under the NFL's personal conduct policy stemming from an aggravated assault charge for allegedly striking his then-fiancee, Janay Palmer, during an altercation in the elevator of an Atlantic City casino.

If you'd told me that a woman would be favored to win the White House and we would still have NFL cheerleaders, I'd have laughed at you. I'd have told you that there was no way the country would be ready for a woman president in my lifetime, but surely the nation's school-boy obsession with grown women leading cheers while wearing not much of anything would eventually be politically incorrect. And I would have been wrong. Those NFL cheerleaders may be going the way of go-go boots, but it is not because football fans have lost their appetite for them.

Deciding how to split up $9 billion in revenues is the biggest obstacle in gaining a new collective bargaining agreement for the NFL, but not the only one. These are the two other contentious issues: Expanded, 18-game regular season: Owners want to convert two unattractive — but full-priced — preseason games into regular-season paydays. Among the concessions they'll have to consider are increasing the roster, reducing the amount of contact players are allowed in practice, and enhancing the post-career healthcare package.

Mosley has been on a crash course since the Ravens drafted him in the first-round (17th overall) of the NFL draft a few weeks ago. It is eat and sleep football all day, every day. Mosley, though, is finally getting settled. "The biggest adjustment is adjusting to football all day," Mosley said. "You're here at 6 in the morning.

During a 21-minute news conference Thursday, Ravens coach John Harbaugh appeared angry, frustrated and disappointed. As he enters his seventh season, the Ravens have never had more off-field incidents than this offseason. Four of the 13 NFL players who have been arrested or charged with a crime since the Super Bowl on Feb. 2 have been Ravens, according to records kept by ProFootballTalk.com. That's an embarrassment to one of the NFL's top organizations. "There have been a lot more phone calls this year than other years in the offseason to find out what the heck some guys are thinking at times," Harbaugh said.
